MBDA and Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) have signed an agreement, which provides for the enhancement of their cooperation. 

According to a relevant announcement, the agreement will see the companies jointly explore new opportunities for the integration of new MBDA weapon systems onto KAI platforms and the export of both together via a joint marketing approach.

The agreement was signed on Monday 20th November by Chris Allam, Managing Director of MBDA UK, and Kang Goo-young, CEO of KAI, in London during a South Korean State visit to the UK.

MBDA is already committed to working together with KAI to successfully complete the integration of MBDA’s Meteor beyond visual range air-to-air missile on the KAI-led KF-21 Boromae fighter aircraft.

Examples of new areas of cooperation being explored under the new agreement include the integration of new MBDA weapons such as SPEAR, ASRAAM, and Brimstone onto KAI platforms, such as KF-21 and FA-50.
